  <dc:description>In view of the breathtaking scope of the comparative research enterprise on reciprocal constructions that was led by Vladimir P. Nedjalkov and whose results are published in these volumes, I have no choice but to select and highlight a few topics that I find particularly interesting and worthy of further comment and further study. I will focus here on conceptual and terminological issues and on some phenomena that have been discussed in the literature but are not so well represented in this work. I will also try to summarize some of the major known generalizations about reciprocals, as discussed in this work and elsewhere, in the form of twenty-six Greenberg-style numbered universals.</dc:description>
